“Drive a tank! Crush cars!”

If you’ve ever watched a tank buzz across the desert and thought, “That’d be cool to drive," or watched a monster truck crush a car and thought, “Oh, that looks fun,” then we have just the road trip destination for you: Tank Town USA. This Georgia playground lets you do everything from drive a tank to crush cars to dig holes with heavy equipment. Tank Town USA is everything great about America.

Tank Town USA sits just outside the Chattahoochee National Forest along the Appalachian Highway, the perfect location for creating a heavy equipment party zone. Here, professional instructors teach you how to operate a wide range of crazy vehicles like military trucks, tanks, and excavators and then let you loose on their 5-acre course full of mud and hills. 

Guests of Tank Town USA have 3 options for their experience: tank driving, excavator operation, or car crushing (in a tank). We’re also pretty sure if you brought them your own itinerary for a day of destruction, they’d happily oblige for the right price.

If you find yourself drooling at the heavy equipment when you’re stuck in construction traffic, this might be the happiest 15 minutes of your life. Tank Town USA teaches you how to dig up dirt with a massive excavator and then puts you in control for at least 15 minutes. (Ages 15+, $75 per 15 minutes)

Want the thrill of driving a tank without the terror of incoming enemy fire? Tank Town USA has you covered. After a quick bit of training, you actually drive an armored tank for 10 minutes or a 1/2 mile. The tank driving course is full of the perfect number of muddy dips and bumps to give you a truly wild ride. (Age 15+, $75 per 10 minutes, $65 per additional 10 minutes.

Oh, this also includes 1 passenger for you to completely terrify.

Where else can you crush a car with a 17 ton military tank? With this package you get to drive a tank for 20 minutes with a car waiting on you at the end of the course. When your time is up, you’ll get to crush a car into a pancake as you hear the metal crumple and glass shatter. Since the instructors love it as much as anyone, they’ll help you keep rolling over the car to make sure you crush every last bit of it. Again, you get to share the destruction with a passenger. (Ages 15+ $499)-Roadtrippers

Tank Town USA is the ultimate heavy equipment playground and the #1 thing to do in Blue Ridge, GA...and possibly the world! Whether you want to drive a military tank, military trucks or construction equipment, Tank Town USA has it all. Our team of professional instructors will put you in the drivers seat as you navigate our 5 acre course designed to let you test what these vehicles can do! It's a fun, fast paced, and exciting adventure for all ages.

Feel the Power! Tank Driving has never been more affordable! For $75.00 you will get personalized instruction on vehicle operation and then 10 full minutes at the controls thundering around our course. We have plenty of bumps, dips and humps to keep it fun the whole way through! Want a little longer behind the controls? You can extend your adventure for as long as you want with each additional 10 minutes of driving costing just $50.00! 

Why just drive a tank when you can crush a car with one? Get your heart pumping with 20 minutes of driving excitement and top it off by smashing a car. Nothing is more thrilling than hearing the hood crumple and the glass shatter as you flatten a car with 17 tons of military steel. Don't just stop with one pass though. We will make sure you hit the car from every angle to ensure that nothing is left untouched. A once in a lifetime experience!

This was a little off the path we were taking for our vacation but it looked like something worth going out of the way for. We were right. The boys loved it. This was the highlight of their vacation. How many people get to say, "I drove a tank". The guy running it is really nice. A very cool experience overall.

Oh my goodness. It's a playground of destruction! Not many places let you flatten a car with a tank. Crushing a car will set you back $500, but you can drive a tank or use an excavator for only $75.

I took my nephew here for his birthday and it was worth every penny. He still says Tank Town was his best birthday party.
